Lio Malca, a giant in the art world, is known for recognising talented artists early in their careers, presenting works in his own New York gallery or at places such as the Whitney Museum. Now he has taken his love of art and integrated it into the magnificent Casa Malca in Tulum, Mexico. The original house with nine rooms was beautifully restored and curated, with another 26 rooms designed and built, dotted around the verdant gardens. After spending the day enjoying the delights of the beach and ocean, or exploring Tulum’s Mayan temples, there is nothing better than strolling up the stairs of the house to the spectacular rooftop bar to watch the sunset. Casa Malca is something special, with world-class contemporary art, nature, history and laid-back luxury combining for an unforgettable vacation.
